Mercury Mariner Problems
If the transmission oil leaks out of left side half shaft area, it may be from a worn axle shaft seal. The seal can be damaged by a poor surface finish on the axle shaft. The axle shaft and seal should be replaced to correct the problem.
Looseness in the steering shaft and steering shaft coupling U-joint can cause a knocking / popping noise from the steering column when turning. The steering shaft and coupling U-joint will need to be replaced.
The transmission oil cooler may develop a leak, which will require replacement to repair.

Mercury Mariner Reviews
Bought my 2007 Mercury Mariner LX V6 4WD, used in 2009, with 24,000 miles. For the first year, I believed I had made a good purchase, however having to replace brakes (pads and rotors turned) at 30,000 miles. I didn't give this a second thought as the brakes may have never before been serviced. Then at 37,000 miles I had to replace them again. At 44,000 I had to replace the rotors, as well....
DON'T BUY THIS CAR
I have about 140,000 miles on my car. This has been a great investment. The only problem I am having now are; the oxgyen sensors are bad. I am having a hard time trying to replace it. This has been an excellent buy. I am very happy I purchased this car.
